Meet the next generation of Easy, Modern, and Powerful PCB design.
Take a glimpse at some of the new and exciting functionalities coming soon in Altium Designer 20!

Any Angle Routing

Editing traces to improve signal integrity can be time-consuming, especially when you have to edit individual arcs and serpentine tunings. This is why Altium Designer 20 incorporates a new gloss engine and advanced push and shove capabilities to help speed up this process so you can improve your productivity.

Schematic Rendering

A smooth and fast schematic experience awaits thanks to DirectX in Altium Designer. This new implementation smoothes out zooming, panning even dramatically speeds up copy and paste functionality.

Return Path Checking

High-speed signals create electromagnetic fields that can cause cross talk, data errors or be radiated unless proper return paths are provided. Proper return paths allow noise currents to return to the ground through a very low impedance, eliminating the problems. Altium Designer 20 will monitor return paths and check the return path integrity of all reference polygons so that you won’t have to manually do it.

Creepage Voltage Rule

In high voltage circuits creepage can be a problem, causing leakage current that can jeopardize your design. Altium Designer 20 has new features that can help you avoid creepage

Time Based Matched Lengths

High-speed digital circuits depend on signals and data arriving on time. If traces are improperly tuned, flight times vary and data errors can be abundant. Altium Designer 20 calculates the propagation time on traces and provides synchronized flight time for high-speed digital signals.

Interactive Properties Panel

Have complete clarity to design objects and functions with the updated properties panel. View pertinent properties, supplier info, and even life-cycle info all in real-time.

Schematic Dynamic Data Model

Unnecessary re-compiling of large schematics can take up a lot of time. This is why Altium Designer uses a new dynamic data model, which incrementally and continuously compiles in the background eliminating the need to perform a full design compile.

Altium Designer 20 Is Now Available!

“During college, I was exposed to Cadence and Mentor Graphics. At my first job, it was Altium Designer and it blew my mind. Altium Designer enabled me to look at the design as a whole and everything was available to me in one suite. Other CAD packages out there require you to purchase different bits and pieces so it was more expensive and the user interface was outdated per se. Altium Designer was very simple to learn. It took me about a week.”
